WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Set in 1977 in the Hill District of Pittsburgh that is served by a makeshift taxi company, August Wilson's Jitney is a beautiful addition to the author's decade-by-decade cycle of plays about the black American experience in the twentieth century. The men who drive gypsy cabs, or "jitneys," strive to find honor and accomplishment in a harsh world. When the station owner's estranged son returns from prison, their reunion unleashes two decades of brutal, raw emotion.
